When is art too provocative? How far can it go before it "goes too far"? While part of The Kentucky Center's mission is "to challenge, stimulate and entertain," people's personal thresholds for challenge and stimulation can be risky things to gauge and treacherous to cross.
A case in point is the appearance last season of the Wau Wau Sisters. The neo-Vaudeville, borderline-burlesque production featured two women in playfully risqué vignettes that included twirling together on a trapeze, singing "dirty" Country Western songs, and performing gymnastic routines to the song "Sister Christian." If none of this sounds particularly provocative, you can sample some of the sister's antics on YouTube and be properly provoked there. The typical Center patron, however, might be excused for believing that such a performance is not exactly mainstream entertainment.
